How to make light up love berry card using reed switch.

Hi, crafty friends!

Today I make light up love berry card using Chibitronics and Waffle Flower Crafts stamps and dies.


I used the reed switch on this card. So when you move the magnet closer to the switch, the switch turns on and Chibitronics glows.


Reed switch has two ferrous reeds. When the reed switch is exposed to a magnetic field, the two reeds inside the switch pull together and the switch closes. When the magnetic field is removed, the reeds separate and the switch opens.



I'm using these stamps and dies.
"Waffle Flower Crafts Let Love Grow Combo"


"Waffle Flower Crafts Apartment Builder Die"
"Waffle Flower Crafts A2 Grid Panel Die"


What you need to make a light up card is like this.
"Chibitronics Red, Yellow, and Blue LED Sticker Pack"
"3V coin cell battery (CR2016)"
"5mm wide Copper tape"
"Conductive Fabric Tape Patches"
"Reed switch"
"1/2 inch Super Strong Magnets"
"1/2 inch Washers"


I'm using these papers.
"Lawn Fawn gotta have gingham petite paper pack"
"Lawn Fawn cardstock in vanilla malt"
"Lawn Fawn cardstock in paper bag"
"Lawn Fawn cardstock in cilantro"
"Lawn Fawn cardstock in guava"


"White vellum paper"
"White cardstock"
"Black cardstock"
